ZEISS Polarised Skylet®

The Ultimate in Sunglass Optics

Polarised Skylet® combines a polarisation filter with contrast enhancing Skylet® tinting for a unique visual experience in extreme light conditions.

Thanks to the colour-enhancing effect of Skylet®, Polarised Skylet® not only reduces glare and hence increases safety, but also offers excellent colour rendition.

Polarisation technology know-how

Light reflected at the surface of a transparent medium is partly polarised. The majority of this light (depending on the angle of incidence and the surface) is polarised perpendicularly. The polarisation filter in Polarised Skylet® is orientated horizontally and ensures that this reflected, perpendicularly reflected light is not let through. In this way, distracting reflections, such as those when driving into the sun on a wet road, are practically eliminated by Polarised Skylet®.

Our Recommendations for Polarised Skylet®

  • Optimum field of application: Anywhere where reflecting surfaces are a source of distraction, e. g. when driving, for water and winter sports
  • The optician can open patients' eyes to the excellent effect of the lens
  • DuraVision® Platinum - unimpaired vision, also with lateral incidence of light
